Just don't use part time 4wd on pavement or any surface that wont allow the tires to slip, otherwise you will cause damage or binding of the transfer case. Its a 50/50 split in power between the front and rear axles so both are spinning the same rpm.

Your transfer case has a full time 4wd that can be used on pavement because it allows the front wheels to turn at different speeds more of a 40/60 split, not exact but this is just an example. This allows the front to be spinning at a lower rpm than the rear so binding doesn't occur. I would only use full time on pavement during heavy rain, in snowy conditions, instances when you need more traction on pavement, or dirt and gavel roads. Basically for situations where you can make it in 2wd but you want the added control of 4wd.

Use part time 4wd when your in situations you can't make it in 2wd or will have difficulty making it in 2wd like snow and mud. Full time 4wd isn't as good as part time 4wd because of the uneven power split which can hinder you in offroad situations. So when you need 4wd use part time.
